there that we raided was his promise to televise health-care negotiations on c-span. it was an interesting promise at the time, made to distinguish himself from hillary clinton, who of course had led the effort in the early part of the clinton presidency for the health care plan and was criticized for having those negotiations private. what did obama do? exactly what hillary did. so we have raided -- so we have rated that a promise broken. where obama talked a big game about transparency, fulfilled a lot of transparency, don't get me wrong, but on something like that, the way washington works, those negotiations are not on c- span, they are in a room at the white house where deals are cut. it is sausage being made. that promise was not fulfilled, so that one earned a broken. host: what about his broader pledges on health care? guest: health care was an area where he had a fair amount of success. he kept 47% of the health-care promises. many of those were tucked inside the health care law, which of course passed in the first two years of his presidency when democrats controlled the house. s

and healthcare continues to rise. in the long history of our nation, we have never increased spending and federal that faster than we have in this time. in the book of proverbs, it's as the wise man leaves an inheritance for his children's children, and unfortunately washington is taking our children's inheritance, and federal spending is taking families down. it is time for democrats and republicans to work together to create a plan to get our nation and families back on track. every family and every business has a budget. our nation should have a budget as well. every year the president is required to submit a budget proposal by february 4. the obama administration has already informed congress that for the fourth time in five years it will be late for a budget to your representatives. unfortunately, the president has missed more budget deadlines than any of his predecessors. the house and senate are required to submit a law each year april 15. the democratic run senate has not approved such a resolution it almost four years -- 1361 days to be exact. this is not the result of washington gridloc

the controversy over president obama's healthcare mandate that got so much attention june of last year, the founding fathers in 7092 passed a law requiring every free citizen, free mail between the ages of 18-45 to outfit themselves with a rifle. the military-style firearms for military -- military-style mustard capable of serving in the militia. so, the founding fathers did not view the second amendment as a basis for insurrection. rather, they viewed it as part of a well-regulated militia. >> yes, ma'am. >> melissa from government affairs here at hopkins. i am wondering if you could talk a little bit about whether in the publication you might be able to stratified -- or break out likely voters. just thinking about polls that policy makers would be paying attention to. likely voters and also by state or region of the country? >> those are good questions. as we know, often in the context of election polling, survey research firms have proprietary algorithms, using a four, or six questions that allows them to break out likely voters. our goal of motivation was something different. where

beyond the question, controlling health-care costs is something we have to look at in this country. so much of what we spend it is attributable to increases in health-care costs. we need to get some of the sharpest minds engaged in focusing how we can bring down health-care costs. host: means testing for medicare and social security. guest: tinkering with medicare and social security is appropriate. right now there's a cap. $110,00, youe know longer contribute to the social security system. i see no reason why we should not raise that substantially. these are people that have the ability to pay into the system and should pay into the system. otherwise it becomes a regressive system if you cut off right now. host: what about raising the eligibility age? guest: i am not in favor of that. i come from a gray district in pennsylvania. nobody is getting rich on social security. raising the eligibility age is probably a bad move. caller: i wonder if they can come to an agreement on the fiscal cliff -- how are you going to solve our debt crisis? i did not think congress should get paid. it is

. for purposes of rallying public opinion behind issues like healthcare. the obama for america structure did not have the same kind of punch outside of a presidential election year that it did in 2008 and 2012. it will be interesting to see if they figure out how to unlock that forced and make it work this time. host: is that due to the agenda of the first term rather than not effectively using them? some pointed to the speech citing, liberal,. rists.r guest: those things dovetailed together. his grassroots support is more liberal than centrisrt. host: in "the new york times" -- guest: that is true. political cycles start much earlier than they have in the past. it is always hard to predict how long a presidential impact will last. if the democrats were to pick up seats in the senate or take back the house and 2014. it could extend his ability to get more done later in his term. at the white house, if you ask him about the timetables they have, they are very acutely aware of the risks of waiting beyond this year or early next year. they have got a lot of stuff backed up already. really testi
